On Saturday, just over a week before the tour was to kick off, the promoter announced via Facebook that the three-stop tour was cancelled. Oji cited in the post that it could not execute the shows “in the exact style with which we envisioned.”
While no one really knows what that means but fans aren’t happy and voiced their displeasure in the comments section following the post even though the promoter offered full refunds.
In 2016, the Delhi leg of the tour was also cancelled in part due to the Jat protests in the area. Earlier in 2017, some David Guetta and Eric Prydz shows via other promoters were also cancelled or delayed in the area.
